In December 1990, a banker reassesses a borrower that, at the time of its leveraged buyout 18 months earlier, seemed to have such a promising future. Now the borrower is in severe financial distress. The tasks for the student are to evaluate competing proposals for restructuring the firm and to recommend a course of action for the bank. This is the "stand-alone" version of the second part of a two-case sequence. Students should not be exposed to this case until they have finished discussing the A case (UVA-F-1012).
